IFSC WORLD CUP SERIES SET TO RETURN TO KRANJ, SLOVENIA
Originally scheduled to take place in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana, the IFSC Lead World Cup in September is now to be held 20 kilometres away in Kranj, Slovenia – the 25th time a Sport Climbing World Cup has been hosted in the country’s third-largest city.
As a result of the venue relocation, the first World Cup following the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is now set to take place from 3 to 4 September, as opposed to 4 to 5 September as initially listed on the 2021 IFSC calendar.
With four Slovenian athletes making finals in the first two Lead world cups of the season and Slovenia’s very own star Janja Garnbret claiming the top podium position at each, the penultimate Lead World Cup of 2021 on the team’s home soil will be a must-see. At the 2019 Lead World Cup in Kranj, Slovenia’s Lucka Rakovec took home bronze; Will the 20-year-old earn another medal this year?
